Starbucks is our guilty pleasure. The coffee mega-giant out of Seattle is always whipping up new menu items (like the Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew) that we just can’t turn down. Customers get their kicks out of the menu, too, by playing with a mishmash of ingredients to create drinks we didn’t know we needed. That’s how the legendary Pink Drink was born, after all.
Now, Starbucks lovers have unlocked the latest beverage in the secret menu lineup. The all-new Orange Drink is here!
Your New Go-To Starbucks Order
Don’t let the name Orange Drink fool you; the newest bevvie hitting the Starbucks secret menu is actually peach-flavored. It’s a combo creation of a half-sweet Black Tea Lemonade and infused peach tea. To get the creamy look and texture, top it off with just a splash of soy milk.
The original recipe comes from TotallytheBombDotCom, who shared the first snap of the Orange Drink via Instagram. Supposedly, it tastes just like those gummy peach rings we can’t help but binge on during long road trips. Totally The Bomb suggests ordering this sipper in a Venti.
Keep in mind that the baristas aren’t trained on secret menu items, so if you want a taste of the Orange Drink, have the recipe ready at the register. Here’s what else Starbucks baristas want you to know about your secret menu order.
They’re Available Now!
The Orange Drink is the gift that keeps on giving, because you can pick this guy up any time of the year. Starbucks always has black tea, lemonade, peach tea and soy milk in stock, so you won’t have to wait for summer to get your hands on an Orange Drink. Before you order, know that each add-on, like soy milk and peach tea, will cost you a little extra.
A Venti Black Tea Lemonade runs about $3.45 depending on your location, plus a surcharge of around 60 cents each for a splash of soy milk and infused peach tea. Still, maxing out at $4.65 isn’t bad. We think we’ll make it a Trenta.
